Thought I would start a thread about books we have read, are currently reading, or plan to read. I am always looking for good suggestions for books (Goodreads and such). I thought I would see what y'all are reading.

I'll start. I just finished reading I am Watching You (mystery), and I am reading Dan Brown's new book Origins. I am also listening to Anna Karenina on audiobooks (I have a long commute, so this is how I am passing that time).

I am Watching You is good, and a fairly easy read. I am only a few chapters into Origins, but it is good so far.

Anna Karenina is really good, but it is extremely long. I am about a 1/3 of the way through it. It is my "large book" that I want to knock out this year. Last year, it was the Count of Monte Cristo. Great story, but it was really long.

So, what are y'all reading? Any particular genre you prefer?

If you like AA Comes of Age then I highly recommend “Not God”. It is truly fascinating.

and Breathing Underwater by Richard Rohr. This one I can’t recommend highly enough.

also check out YouTube speakers Sandy Beach and Joe and Charlie’s Big Book lessons. Sandy is inspirational and Joe and Charlie break down the contents better than pretty much everyone. That’s like an 11 hour series

I'll have to remember to check that out. I've been reading the others so haven't really started AA comes toage but may have to tomorrow night at work.

i want to read the rest of the girl who played with fire. fantastic series.

i have an issue where when i like something so much, i have a hard time putting my time towards the story etc. i just know i'll be absorbed by it till finished.

seriously awesome story and collection. i'd easily submit to lisbeth.

Going to the library today to pick up the Girl who played with fire!!!!!

And, yes, I'm the same way, it was hard to put those books down.....

You better.have a story ready. Like your her uncle or something. Your likely to end up in serious hot water and they won’t even care about her pyro tendencies.

It took me a minute to get above (I'm getting old)....well done sir!!!1

For my birthday I got some Audible gift cards and I picked up Mythos by Stephen Fry and he also narrates. It’s absolutely fantastic. If you like Ancient Greek mythology or are just a fan of Fry you’ll love this. The myths are retold with Fry’s wit and humor and it really works well with the subject snd you can tell he has an affection for the stories. My daughter also gets a kick out of it. If you need a break from the news I can’t recommend this high enough.

Finished Station Eleven.... but maybe too on the nose for these days and times.

it’s such an amazing read, though. One of the best I’ve read in the last five years


Description
Station Eleven is a 2014 novel by Emily St. John Mandel. It is Mandel's fourth novel. The novel takes place in the Great Lakes region after a fictional swine flu pandemic, known as the "Georgia Flu", has devastated the world, killing most of the population. It won the Arthur C. Clarke Award in 2015.

Since Issac Asamov's Foundation is coming to Apple TV, I figured I'd go ahead and read the series.

Natalie Cole's autobiography Angel On My Shoulder. She'd spoke about her past drug addiction in interviews but I had no idea she was as bad off into drugs as she was. My goodness!
